VIDEO: Raymond van Barneveld’s nine-dart finish

by | 5th, January 2009

Making a nine-dart finish is the Holy Grail for any arrows-smith. Making a nine-dart finish in front of Sky Sports’ TV cameras and thousands of ‘Christmassy’ (ie. drunk) spectators is more difficult than eating three cream crackers in less than a minute. In other words, it’s almost impossibly difficult.

But Raymond van Barneveld, a former multiple world champion (and postman), did just that at the recent PDC World Championships. Watch Barney make history below:

Barney was “dippin’ his bread dips” (Sid Waddell ©) indeed. Spine-tingling stuff.

Footnote: Barney was thrashed in the final, by Phil The Power Taylor. Oh well.
